Sun Thursday Contest edition 5 - Come on Guys!

Dear photography lovers and Sun addicts - thanks for all contributions in the first two editions of the SunThursday contest. Hope we will have more participants this time - next contest starts now.

The rules

Please create a post using the tag #SunThursday showing your own original photography or video work covering the sun or write about positivity which I link to the sun which enabled and maintains the possibility of life in general. The three best submissions will receive their prize token after 5 days (in this case September 1 / 2).

  • Post photography, video or written content covering the topic SUN
  • Use the tag #SunThursday as your first tag
  • Add link to your submission in the comments on THIS post
  • Consider to "vote&reblog" this post to spread the contest (not mandatory but it might help)
  • Only original (your own) content will qualify
  • Contest submissions will need to be made until August 31, 10pm CET to make sure we have enough time to select the winner
  • Decision on the winner will be made by the winner of the previous Sun Thursday week - so @almi it is you to decide on - given you are not aware yet of this news please let me know if you are happy to judge (please note: you can not attend this time then) or not.
    We would need to have the decision by September 1, 10pm CET to ensure the votes will be given as part of the prize.

What to win (contest will be handled every two weeks)

This is a fun contest where I still am searching for sponsors - for now the following rewards will be paid to the three winners:

1. Prize: 3 Hive
2. Prize: 2 Hive
3. Prize: 1 Hive

PLUS - all three will receive a little UPVOTE by @theycallmedan - thanks for supporting this!

Many THANKS again to the sponsors

We have some great Hive users that sent me some Steem and Hive to support the winning three entries.

@dswigle - a lovely lady from the US that I know since times way before the Steem blockchain was invented - she generously sponsored 20 Hive from her own pockets

@ervin-lemark - one of the legends on the blockchain, here since I can think of blockchain and also sponsored 20 Hive

@theycallmedan - I am sure all of you know this Hive supporter and promoter - he will vote the three winning posts moving forward.

Always open for community sponsors

Please comment or DM me if you want to support great photography content creators. Ideally a community or whales joins the party so we do not get stuck with small user pocket money only :-).

I wanted to participate but I see I haven't any chance! 😂 August 16 was my birthday!

sorry - August 31, changed it - thx for discovering and happy belated birthday!

Thanks!! ☺️

Good luck @detlev - thanks for submitting

Thanks for attending @melinda010100 - good luck!

Hope it brings in a couple more last minute entries!

That is lovely - happy to invest more time judging.....aham.... no - not me - it is @almi as winner of the last one - however if he does not reply until 11pm CET today I might have to decide which I wanna avoid to be honest.

Good luck with that! Judging is my least favorite part of hosting contests and I am quite lucky to have some marvelous judges willing to do it! I hope @almi gets here in time! 😁

Agreed - to select top 3 is hard - however i will probably give all attendees a 100% vote from me as well to compensate, only 40-50 cents worth but at least sth - we will see

Please consider my photo as promotional and spread the winnings around to smaller accounts!

That is nice but not that easy - as much as I would to support smaller accounts with it in fairness we have to judge from a different point of view - I now even more hope @almi is jumping in here lol. Judging beauty or quality of such posts is pretty hard if you are an amateur in Art.

Wow - this is a magnificent photograph with the moonglade

Thanks! ❤️❤️

Thanks for attending again @pandamama - good luck

Finally, glad to be able to participate again. I feel that in this edition there will be more participation and more competition. Good luck to everyone and let's not forget the motto of the Olympics ... It's important to participate!

That's why I'm doing it again ...

Cool, sounds like a great challenge. How many pictures were you supposed to use?

sorry for the delay, It was really difficult the selection, since all the participants shots are great! However, here are my three favorites: @denissemata, @awakentolife, @jlufer. Is only a suggestion!
